Frank Lloyd Wright’s Maya-Inspired House For Sale in Los Angeles

From The Los Angeles Times – June 19, 2009 – By Martha Groves

The 1924 Ennis House, heavily damaged in the Northridge quake and by rains, is being offered for $15 million. It’s the largest of the architect’s experimental ‘textile block’ houses.

Frank Lloyd Wright’s Ennis House, a Los Feliz hilltop masterpiece composed of patterned and smooth concrete blocks that has been mightily threatened by man and Mother Nature, is being offered for sale at $15 million by the private foundation that has been restoring it.

The Maya-inspired estate, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, has been featured in films including “House on Haunted Hill,” “Grand Canyon” and the futuristic “Blade Runner.”

Inspired by the ruins of Uxmal, Mexico, the striking 6,000-square-foot estate consists of a main house and a smaller chauffeur’s quarters, separated by a paved motor court. Wright’s notion was to craft an organic structure that literally seemed to rise from the site.
